NA Grade

The “NA” grade may be placed on a student's transcript if the student has registered for a course, and:

  • did not attend the course during the Add/Drop period, and
  • failed to drop the course by the published Add/Drop deadline, and
  • if course attendance is taken and faculty submits “NA” grade roster by the designated deadline.

Once a grade of NA is assigned, it cannot be changed to a letter grade.
The “NA” grade does not affect a student's grade point average. The student is, however, responsible for all tuition and fees for the “NA” course.
Faculty who take attendance may submit an “NA” by the designated deadline usually during the first month of the semester.
